What is the GED?

A GED, short for General Educational Development or General Equivalency Diploma, is a credential that can be earned by individuals who did not complete their high school education but want to demonstrate that they possess the equivalent knowledge and skills of a high school graduate.

To earn a GED, individuals need to pass a series of tests that assess their knowledge in subjects such as mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. The GED tests are designed to measure the academic skills and knowledge that are typically acquired in high school.

Earning a GED can open up educational and employment opportunities for individuals who didn’t graduate from high school.

Benefits of having a GED

Improved Career Opportunities

Many employers require at least a high school diploma or its equivalent for entry-level positions. With a GED, you are more likely to meet this requirement and access a wider range of job options.

Opportunity for Higher Learning

A GED is often a prerequisite for post-secondary education, such as enrolling in college or trade schools. It opens doors to various educational and training programs that can enhance your skills.

Higher Earning Potential

Getting a GED greatly improves job prospects. On average, GED holders earn more than those without a high school diploma, enhancing employment opportunities.
